Chase and Vader help law enforcement

Wright County Sheriff Deputy Josh Tester with Vader, left, and Deputy Dan Cotten with Chase, right, form the Wright County Sheriff's Department K-9 Unit. The two dogs and their handlers have regular assigned patrols with the department, but are also on-call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. When the dogs are off-duty, they live with their handlers.

 

The K-9 teams sometimes train together. Deputy Dan Cotten works with Vader to maintain Vader's skills in subduing a suspect.

 

Vader is ready for action, but he will not leave his kennel built into half of the back seat of the patrol car until his handler commands him to.

 

The strength of Chase is apparent as Chase shows his skills in holding a suspect. Deputy Josh Tester wrestles with Chase until Chase's handler Dan Cotten calls Chase off.

 

Chase is waiting patiently for his handler Dan Cotten to see that he has successfully located a gun lying in the weeds on the right. Chase is trained not to touch any evidence to avoid any tainting that could jeopardize an arrest and future court case.

 

Although his handler Josh Tester is also searching somewhere behind the vehicle, Vader sits and waits because he has found drugs in the engine compartment. Vader is trained not to move until his handler comes back to him to complete the search.
